First Dinosaur Tail Found Preserved in Amber

Kristen Romey, writing for National Geographic:

The tail of a 99-million-year-old dinosaur, including bones, soft tissue, and even feathers, has been found preserved in amber, according to a report published today in the journal Current Biology.

Update: This is four-year-old news that was news to me. Whoops. (I mistakenly assume old or even just old-ish news is new news about as frequently as I bite my lip. And in both cases, when it happens, I think, “I can’t believe I did that. That’s the last time.” And then I pay attention to the date on each item I link to or each bite I chew for about six months or so, before I lose that attentive focus.)
